The Hidden Dangers of Scalping in Forex. Scalping is a trading method in which the chart technician opens several very short-term trades with the aim of coming away with small gains each time. Scalpers, if they use a stop loss, typically set it to at least twice the amount of that they want to make in profit.


In a word: trading is risky! So, here traders need to make sure their trading skill to be a consistent performer! Whatever, trading style you are using- having a good trading skill is the must!

trading is risky but scalping is the riskiest of them all. A scalper can lose all their money in a single day. Better to trade long term

Nope. Scalper just take small profits so scalper does not gain much from single trade.
The risk is completelly different story not so related to trading style aka scalping but to risk mgmt.

If you scalp with no equity management yes you can lose it all. You can lose all your money in a long term trade as well. Learn your craft and trade with caution.

Never risk more than you can afford to lose

Knowledge is the power; whatever trading style we follow; we need to make sure first our own trading skill.

Any trading strategy is risky. Scalping is one of the most risky.
However, in order to make a profit you should always take some risk.

The scalpers always feel uncomfortable when using this trading approach practically. Because mostly trading brokers don’t allow trading concept such as this.

In this case, traders need to check their terms & conditions before investing their own money!

But, taking with high risk isn’t a smart choice; as you know making big profit isn’t our goal; in Forex sustaining in a long run is the main challenge!

scalping is not risky if you have good riskmanagement. I do scalping and everything is ok.

Besides, having a good trading strategy on scalping is very much important; without a proper trading system the journey is too sticky!

That is not necessarily true. Swing trading brings the most profits and is the least risky IMHO

True, it's the long run that speaks enough if you are trading in a right manner or not. I do more of scalp than swing, and it's not that riskiest if we manage the risk well with sound behavior but I can tell that it's not good for everyone as it affect the mind badly, can create lot of stress and have a mentally imbalance. Forex should not be taken for the intention of becoming rich SOON.

scalping not risky ,
brokers dont like scalping - they call it arbitrage sometimes and you cannot withdrawal
scaping good only if statistics of SL/TP go more at TP side, but if you catch several consistent SLs - then hard and long to recovery it using same scalp system

I read a big part of this thread and can say that 70-80% of people have bad experience in scalping. Of course some people had profit from scalping, otherwise there would not be this thread. I stayed with my opinion. Scalping is more risky then other trading strategies.

All currency trading is risky, Scalping also not beyond it. But i think it's riskier from others

Scalping is risky only if you do not know how to trade in this way.

yes any trade is a risk that you may lose. Problem with scalping is that the losses can be fast and many
